Learn About the Health of Beaver Brook, Wilmington, VT
And What Citizens Can Do to Help
Brattleboro, VT— Connecticut River Conservancy and Deerfield River Watershed Association invite landowners and concerned citizens to join them Thursday, November 8th from 5 pm to 7 pm at Memorial Hall (14 West Main Street) in Wilmington, VT for a public forum to learn about and discuss the health of one of Wilmington’s downtown waterways, Beaver Brook. Refreshments will be served.
Volunteers with Deerfield River Watershed Association have been conducting water quality sampling in Beaver Brook and other Wilmington area waterways for the past two years. Additionally, through a Vermont Watershed Grant, Connecticut River Conservancy staff conducted a stream walk of Beaver Brook in June of this year to visually assess the health of the brook.
Guests from state and local agencies will be on hand to answer questions and assist with detailed watershed information.
The Deerfield River Watershed Association is a non-profit with the mission to preserve and protect the resources of the watershed in Southern Vermont and Northwestern Massachusetts
